PTV Reporter BLASTS Media Who Claimed Duterte Said "Son of A Whore" to Obama, What A Shame!

President Rodrigo Duterte has been making headlines to local and international media outlets once again after he was misquoted during the Association of Southeast Asian Nation (ASEAN) summit in Laos.
Obama Duterte



Big media outlets claimed that Duterte cursed United States President Barrack Obama, saying “Son of a Whore.”

Senior Reporter Ethel Constantino of People’s Television Network was quick to clarify that Duterte did not curse Obama. She posted on her Facebook account about it and her post went viral.

She said:

Duterte did not curse Obama. He was only addressing the Filipinos who are subservient to the USA. Obama was named because a Reuter reporter asked President Duterte if Obama will ask the question.

And he said the exact words Duterte had said.

Here is the verbatim:

"I am a Pres. of a sovereign state and we have long ceased to be a colony. I do not have any master except the Filipino people. Nobody, but nobody. You must be respectful. Do not just throw away question and statements. Putang ina- mumurahin talaga kita diyan sa forum."

Ang problema: di minura ni duterte si Obama pero ang gustong palabasin ng media is minura niya to. What a big difference there is! If they could not translate and understand tagalog, these international News organization should hire someone credible to do that for them.#iampinoyproudako#partnerforchange

Netizens were quick to comment on the post and shared their opinion as well:

Language is elliptical and words have no meaning until translated into action. As it appears, misinterpretations occur invariably because we don't share commonality of vocabulary. President Rody is exerting his utmost in doing whatever he can for the posterity of our country. Ironically, we do not share commonality of what we really want for our country.
I watched the recorded video right after it was recorded live. A few hours later headlines were all over the media how everything got so twisted and taken out of context!. I was so mad! Even more convinced that drug lords are in higher places to deliberately make the President look "bad"! And that asshole of a reporter to ask that question!?? I think he's placed there to do a lot of jobs more than just to ask a f*cking question!

The post has now more than 2,000 shares and was even shared by Department of Tourism Undersecretary Kat De Castro.
